Peanut Butter Recall At Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Safeway and Kroger

Posted:
 WASHINGTON, DC - The Food and Drug Administration has ordered a recall of peanut and almond butters that were sold at several major grocers in the U.S. and Canada. Those grocers include Safeway, Whole Foods, Kroger, Trader Joes.  

This comes after reports of four illnesses related to the nut butters which were sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butters, MaraNatha Almond Butters and Peanut Butters, and private label brands for Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Kroger and Safeway.

The Food and Drug Administration said it does not know how many jars of nut butters were recalled. "Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," the FDA has said.

"Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses," it added. 


The potential risk was brought to the Company's attention by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration following routine testing. 


nSpired Natural Foods, Inc. issued a statement saying "it is committed to producing the highest quality products and our top priority is the safety of our consumers. For this reason we are initiating this voluntary recall of the products below as a precautionary measure."


The use-by date can be found on the top of the jar lid. The Company is currently working with customers and retailers to remove and destroy products with the above use-by dates from store shelves and warehouses.
